COVID-19 Update

Pure Dental Health is dedicated to helping our community during this time. We are seeing patients for emergencies BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Please call our office to schedule your appointment.

We’ve made a decision based on ADA and CDC recommendations to postpone elective procedures for at least one week, however, we are still seeing patients depending on your need.

According to the association, emergency dental care include:

  • Any treatment for pain, swelling or infection
  • Chipped, cracked and broken teeth
  • Loose or displaced restorations

Refrain from coming in if you have:

  • A fever
  • A cough or shortness of breath
  • A history of significant chronic illness
  • A compromised immune system
  • Or if you or a family member:
    • Are considered high-risk
    • Have traveled to a location with a level 3 travel health notice
    • Have traveled in a airplane in the past two weeks
    • Have been previously asked to self-isolate or self-quarantine
    • Have had close contact to an individual diagnosed with the COVID-19 infection

We are also scheduling virtual exams. You can meet with a dentist from your home. This service will allow you to have a virtual exam with your dentist via video call. This service should be available by 3/20/20. When calling, notify our scheduler if you would like to schedule a virtual appointment and they will take your name and number and get back with you with available times once this service is live.

We will be posting updates as we have them.

Health News Article- Midnight Snacking and Tooth Loss ,

Article Title: Midnight Snacking, Eating After Dinner Linked to Tooth Loss

Article Source:  http://www.colgate.com/app/CP/US/EN/OC/Information/Articles/ADA/2010/article/ADA-06-Consumer-News-Night-Eating-Tooth-Loss-Link.cvsp

Article Review:

Through this health news article, researchers investigated the link between midnight snacking and tooth loss.  Researchers found that individuals who tend to snack more after dinner face more weight gain along with an increase in tooth decay and loss.

Researchers predict that because we do not have as much saliva at night, we cannot remove food debris as easily after late night snacking.  This in-turn leads to a greater chance for cavities to begin to form at night.

Pure Dental Health follows this research because we know the importance of maintaining oral health. The more research that we have about dental health, the more that we can maintain your dental health. We find ways to keep your teeth at their healthiest so that you can always have a beautiful and bright smile to show to the world.

If you are a late night snacker, then we can discuss some of your options when you come into our Pure Dental Health office.  We want to ensure that your teeth are protected, especially in the late night hours.

However, if tooth loss does occur, Pure Dental Health also offers a wide array of procedures to restore your smile’s beauty and functionality.  To learn more about ways to avoid tooth loss, do not hesitate to contact Pure Dental Health.  Also read the health news article listed above!
